look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a dark, dark almost black with a nice 1 inch tan colored head that takes its time dissipating leaving good lacing down a 20 oz pub glass.

Smell is pretty pronounced. I get a alcohol smell with some chocolate and coffee.

Taste is a chocolaty taste but not like I expected. Its almost like a chocolate candy rather than the chocolate milk that I expected. It has a tangyness to it that I did not see coming.

Mouthfeel is really full and almost velvety. The residual carbonation is very slight after the head is gone.

Overall, a good beer. Not my favorite porter but it is definetly worth the purchase. I will buy it again and depending on how my spaghetti sauce turns out, it may have become my go to beer for cooking chili, stews and sauces.

Wow, really loved this one a lot. The color is dark brown with a khaki colored head that doesn't trail the glass. The smell was very decadent with hints of chocolate, sweet cream, and walnuts. The taste was just as tasty with chocolate and coffee being front and center and a little bit of smoke which evened everything out. Was very impressed and will definitely try again.
